Transportation Policy Forum

AASHTO Liaison
Joung Lee, Policy Director

The primary responsibility of the Transportation Policy Forum is to discuss and recommend policies related to legislation, regulation, and other policy matters to the Board, including the Association’s recommended positions on reauthorization of key transportation legislation and on ongoing topical issues of interest to state DOTs. These policies may include multimodal, multi-disciplinary, and emerging issues that have originated from the Councils and Committees or have been assigned to the Policy Forum by the Board of Directors or its Strategic Management Committee. The Transportation Policy Forum also acts as the “traffic cop” in routing technical documents to the appropriate Councils and/or the Special Committee on Freight for review and balloting, but does not approve or ballot these documents.
